I was talking about what you did here:

@@ -109,24 +109,23 @@ static int __init idio_16_probe(struct
platform_device *pdev)
struct device *dev = &pdev->dev;
struct idio_16_gpio *idio16gpio;
+ const unsigned base = idio_16_base;
+ const unsigned extent = 8;
+ const char *const name = dev_name(dev);
int err;

- const unsigned BASE = idio_16_base;
- const unsigned EXTENT = 8;
- const char *const NAME = dev_name(dev);

So this is already done - sorry for not having been clear.
